Hi there,

For those interested in boundaries of Native Title Determinations you can now download KMZ files which display the boundaries in Google Earth from the National Native Title Tribunal website.

For further information click in your area of interest and information will be displayed regarding the determination including who the custodians are.

Hi Alan

That could be useful - don't suppose you know where we could get that data in a format used by Ozi explorer.

Hi

Open the KMZ file in Google Earth, then right mouse click on Place Name in left pane, select "Save Place As" and choose *.kml. ...Save file

In Ozi select LOAD -> Import Google Earth (kml) File.

Cheers

Good question Robin,

Greg thats the obvious way however it doesn't work for me, file may be too large.

I tried importing in to Ozi from that page as a ESRI Shape file (*.shp).

The 1.2 million points uploaded no problems however only display in the map view page. Some of the file displays on the main view screen as required however as an estimate only about 10% of the data.

Cheers

My apologies - never tested the data in question - way to big.

No surprise - OziExplorer isn't a full on GIS program (like Arcview/Global Mapper etc ) and can only load a limited number of "track" (AKA polyline/polygon) points.

I tried the next obvious :) option ..instead of converting the whole lot as one, just selected and saved one small NT area as kml ...smaller file, but Ozi won't recognise data ...?

Plan B -> open the previously mentioned kml file (of just one small area) in Global Mapper and saved as GPX - then open in OziExplorer - works fine !!

So, Ozi has some limitations/data format issues with respect to this data/Google Earth export format and alternative programs required (if you want view data in Ozi ). Maybe someone else knows a simpler/alternative solution.

Cheers
Greg
